All Season Springs to Life, PIQ a-Booms Into Berkeley

Posted By on Wed, Sep 15, 2010 at 8:45 AM

​The past 24 hours in gossip, innuendo, and cold hard facts about the

San Francisco restaurant scene.

Paolo L. of Inside Scoop leads today's roundup with the news that the Diamond Heights Yet Wah has become All Season [no -s] Seafood Restaurant (5238 Diamond Heights Blvd., 282-8883, The menu, posted online, is 95 percent Chinese-American standards, but given the fact that the website is bilingual, that the name includes the word "seafood," and that many of the online photos depict dishes not listed on the English menu, one suspects that a second, much better Cantonese seafood menu awaits. Explore and report back to me, please.

Thrillist led the day's e-mail announcements with the news that a cafe named Pane Italiana Qualita, or PIQ (91 Shattuck, 510-540-7700, just opened in Berkeley. The owner is Rufo Verga, with backers from Il Fornaio and Mr. Espresso. The pitch: pizzas, panini, and free use of an iPad. 

Grub Street gets the tipoff that there's a restaurant named Latin Grill Express coming to 993 North Point. Somebody's been reading the liquor board applications again.

Eater SF notes that Skool has just launched a brunch menu, and points out (rightly) that the patio is one of the nicest in Potrero Hill. 

Side note: SFoodie apologizes for the punnage.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
